I have checked the POP3 code, and indeed found the bug you mentioned.
This bug was introduced at 3.4.0beta1.
Fixed at r3375.

I will release 3.4.1 with this fix soon.
Thanks for reporting!

Released 3.4.1.

Remote mailbox seems to have similar problem,
but its deleting of messages requires explicit user operation.
So I'll fix it at the next release.
